I A qimranl.no station will be established at I I "RlRoleta on tha Louisiana-Mississippi boundary I I Use, where all sick or suspicious persons will bo I deta.ned. It is now clearly established that a I majority of tho 600 people In Ocean Springs I who in or have been sick there sutTered frim I tie dengue, and not ) ellow fever. The prelim- I I Jnary sv aiptoins of tho two diseases, thill, fever, I ieulactie. and weakness are tho same, although I sine disease Is very mild and the other very ma I lijaant. There were not over sixty coses of I RSDuir.o yellow fever la tho GOO cases, it is I thought, and all of the twelve deaths ore at I tnbutable to that disease. I When the yellow fever slipped In the doctors I did not distinguish between the two levers. I and when the tlrst Now Orleans expert exnm- I iaed the malady and pronounced It dengue, I they probably saw and examined only case of I den,rue. The Ocean Sprints people still deny I the existence of yellow fe cr there and held a I violent .adi-natlon meeting to-day at which all the local officials were present. They de- nouncodZtho Boards of Health of Louisiana, B Alabama, and Mississippi, and the United I Stales Manns Hospital service for declaring ' the epidemic yellow fever. Tho town Is tbur- oughly quarantini d and no one can leuve or ester It. As supplies ore short there and tho I Ice supoly has cump.ctely run out, some means B wUl save to bo adopted to send provisions into B the town. A cordon of armed quarantine B guards now surrounds th town on land, and B the steamer New "York, belonging to the Mls- etssippl Board of Health, patrols the seaport to B prevent boats running In or out of town. fl The Mississippi Hoard of Health is satisfied B that the fever cams in from the L'nlted stales quarantine station at Ship Island, which U twelve miles away. The board has frequently Srotestcd against this station a a menace to is entire Uulf coast. Gov.

With regard to tho conditions there at present, wo have Information that affairs there are being closely attended to by Dr. Oant, a member of the Board of Health of Mississippi. We have wired him and the State Board of Health that tbe Treasury regulations, innds under tho interstate quarantine law for Just such events, should be rigidly enforced. They aro explicit, and the board Is expected to enforce them, All measures nro being taken to confine the disease within Its original limits. We have wired them that all assistance they may deem necessary will be placed at their dlpoeal, and meantlmo I have sent our own otllrers ttirro to see that tbe law Is strictly enforced. Surgeon Murray will be In command of the work at Ocsan Springs. "To-day I ordered Surgeon Carter, who Is In rbarge of the Marine Hospital at Chicago, to go , to Ocean Springs, lie has hail large experience with such epidemics. He will hare charge of the tracing down of rumored esses. In every outbreak of this kind tho condition of things Is exaggerated, and cases are reported hers and there throughout tho country that are not yellow fever and have no connection with tho disease. At the same time they might prove to bo of this sume nature, and Itlsalway beit that they bo speedily Investigated. This will be done by Surgeon Carter and his assistants. He will also have charge of tbe train Inspection service. We have a number of other physi cians who will assist in tho work. I have or dered shipped to Oco.in Springs by fast freight, for disinfecting purposes, a port able self.fumlgator ami a steam disinfect ing chamber, both of which wcro con structed for jun such an emergency. I nave also ordered the camp, wnicn is completely titled with tents and bed, now stored at Wavncaville, Oa., to be shipped at once to a point east of Ocean Springs, where a camp will bo constructed for quarantine purposes. This will ho under the charge of Surgeon Murray. The regulations governing this service are well understood, and will be effective." Gen. Wyman could form no Idea as to how tho fever originated. He hid heard that the drain age was bod at Ocean rfprlngi, and that a bed of oysters had been planted at a point where they would be reached by that drainage. He was certain that It did not come through Ship's Isl and, the quarantine station, some ten miles oft Ulloxl. There had been only ono case of yellow fever there this yenr. and that was in June. While there was a possibility of tbe dlseaso spreading among tbo visitors at the springs who had already left the place and returned to their homes, he thought tho measures which had bi-en taken would go a long way toward preventing tbl x. Tho worst period of the yellow fever epldem IcscomcinSepUinber and early Ortober. it was fortunate that the outbreak had net begun In .tuly. but there was still much danger. It was too early to m ike any prognosis, ho said, and be would not attempt to do mi. The news they bad from there to-night was encouraging, and tbey hoped to see the trouble decrease at omt". Dr. Wyman said that he would let tho Louisiana Board of Health have complete charge of the cases In New Orleans. The board was well equipped for dealing with the fever. There was little or no danger of tho fever's reaching the Northern cities, be said. Until a cordon was established around Ocean Springs the railroads had been notified not to sell tlckots for any points except those north of ' Washington or to mountainous districts. Only one new case was reported during the day in New Orleans as resulting in death and three new cases developed. It Is regarded na a fortunate circumstance that theTreasury Department recently procured from tbe War Department 200 tents for the per l manent enmp at Waynesboro. This was not done in expectation of an outbreak, but so as to be ready In case of emergency. -VO FEATt OP TELLOir JACK UERE. Tb Dlaeaaa Won't tiet Ina tha City an Canldat Spread ir It Did. New York need have no fear of the yellow fever. An epidemic of the disease here is Im possible. It Is possible that there might be a stray caso brought from the infected districts. I Nearly every week a sufferer with the disease I gets as for as Quarantine, where he Is detained , until the danger Is post. It is possible that an affected person might get Into the city by means I of the railroads, but such are the precautions taken by tha Board of Health should this happen that there would be no spread of tho disease, even If tho sanitary and climatic conditions of the city were favorable to It, which tbey are not. Neither Health Officer Doty nor the Hoard of Health bos received any official Information as to the existence of yellow fever In MissiasippL Only one extra precautionary measure has been adopted by Health Ottlccr Doty. He haa Issued notices that oil vessels coming from ports near the Infected districts must bring certificates from the health officers of their sailing ports certifying to the sanitary condition of the place, tho condition of the passengers, and all facts i relating to their posslblo exposure to Infection. I Dr. Doty said yesterday that he looked for little trouble from Incoming steamers. "I do not tblnk," he said, "that we will get I many refugees at Quarantine. They won't come r by water, but by rail. If thev come at all. It is I a Uve or six day trip by water from the Infected districts, and only forty-eight hours by rail. If there is a panic down there the people will not , take tbe long water trip to the North, but will Jump on a train and come in leas than half the time. New York bos absolutely nothing to fear. . Leaving out all other considerations the aeason , 1 of tho year la unfavorable for the propagation t ! of thf yellow fever germ. It Is not nor can It be I endemic here, and it cannot live in cold weather. ' "Yellow fever Is not contagious like small ' pox. It is Infectious. In the past two months we have hail fifteen nr eighteen cases brought to this city from West Indian and Central American part. We have bad tbum at Swin- i burne, and we have not had a single secondary case. "The germ of the disease thrives on filth and can always be stamped out by the proper sanitary precaution. A year ago Santos, Brazil, was full of yellow fever. The citizens cleaned ' ap tho city and this yenr there have been but two cases. After the epidemic In Memphis a few years ago a new system of sewerage was put In and tbo city has been practically freo from the disease alnco. No city Is In a better , condition from a sanitary point of view than I New Y'ork. i "In tho present case, continued Dr. Doty, I "the only quarantine precautions possible must i be taken by the Government on the spot. It would bo impossible for us to try to take precau tions against Hie Introduction of the disease by ' fiasneugers on the railroads. In dealing with yel- i ow fever I think it a wise plan to treat every ' suspicious caso as yellow fever. Tbesyuintomsot yellow fever and malarial fever aro tfie s uno. and until one uf the two diseases asserts Itself the patient should be treated for yellow favrr. Wo bave lines of steamers coming to this port from Charleston. Savannah, Jacksonville, Now Orlenns. and tbe Texas ports." I Dr. Benedict of the Bureau of Contagions Diseases said that hla department was paying verv little attention to yellow fever. "If a case comes to town we shall do Just as we would in a caso of scarlet fever. Anepldemlo here la nut of ths question. If a case Is reported we will send an expert, nnd If be pronounces It yellow fever, the patient will be removed to the Wlllard Parker Hospital, at tho font of East Sixteenth street, and tho house disinfected. Several cases have been reported to us in tbe last tevr weeks. One was in n promlneut hotel, but none of tho cases was yellow fever and nothing more wus said about any of them." New York has been very freo from yellow Jack for three-quarters of a century. In 1708 tbe worst epidemic occurred. Although several savants announced that they had discovered tho microbe of yellow fever, bacteriologists have never acknowledged that it had been found. e Action by tbe Wa.blostaa Post omre. WgmOToy, Sept. 7. First Assistant Postmaster-General Heath said to-day that the de partment was taking no cognizance of tha ex istence of tbe yellow fever In Mississippi. Ths matter will be left In the hands of tha superin tendent of tbe railway mall service for the dis trict involved, who will see that the malls are despatched so as to avoid the fever districts as much as possible.

City officials are considering tbo question of inviting refugees from the Infected yellow fever districts to come to Lookout Mountain. It Is said that the dis ease cannot exist at that elevation, and that It would be the part of humanity to provide a place of refuge for the frightened Southerners.

Richard Welstead Croker of Wantoge. Berk shire, England, during tha English racing sea son, and of this city when there are politics to play and the game is worth ths candle, arrived in New York early yesterday morning on the American liner Now Y'ork. Ha was accompa nied by his son Herbert, who has boon at school in Germany, and by Andrew Freedmnn, propri etor of tho New York Baseball Club, and Jeffer son M. Levy, one of the committee of business men who waited on Mr. Croker last February and asked him to be the candidate of tha Democ racy for Mayor of tha Greater Now York. Tho other member of ths committee who also went to Europe to keep the Mayoralty bee buzzing In Mr. Crokcr'a bonnet, James J. Coogan, Is on the I other side of the Atlantic yet. Mr. Croker still asserts that bets no longer a political leader; that his Interest In politics Is only that of an anient Tammany private, and that John C. Sheeban Is really as well as nom inally tho big chief of the Tammany Council. For a man who asserts that his days of activity in politics nre ended Mr. Crokor excited much Interest and attention among politicians yester day At the American line pier when the New York arrived were Mrs. Croker, who had como down from her summer homo at Rlchllcld Springs to welcome her husband, and the follow ing named Tammany politicians: Ex-Commls-sloner of Public Works Michael T. Daly, ex Charltlos Commissioner Edward C. Sheeny, Warden J. J. Fallon of tbe Tombs, Sachem Hen ry D. Hotchkiss, and Treasurer Peter F. Meyer of the Tammany Society, the latter the business partner of Mr. Croker, and Congressman Wil liam Sulzer. Later In tho day, when he visited his office at 111 Broadway and took off his coat to settle down to the businrfs of advising and directing In tbe political campaign about to begin, the politicians flocked to him In greater numbers. Among those who called were: John C. Sbechnn, his brother. William F. Sheehan. the ex-Lieutenant-Governor; Chief Justice Robert A. Van Wyck of the City Court, who has been spoken of as a possible Mayoralty candidate; Senator Thomas F. Grady, member of the Demo cratic State Committee and oratorical mouth plrse of the Wigwam: Augustus W. Peters, wbo Is to hare a placo on tho Tammany county ticket. It Mr. Croker consents; Senator Jo cob A. Cantor, who may be nominated for District Attorney; ex-County Clerk Patrick Kee nan. wbo would like to be elected to his old place; City Court Justice Edward F. O'Dwyer, who Is a candidate for reflection; ex City r'hnm berialn T. C. T. Crain. Congressmen George 11. McClellan. and District Leaders John T. Carroll. Charles F. Murohy. and Charles Welde. John C. Sheeban spent more than an hour with Mr. Croker enlightening him regarding the exact political situation, and giving an ac count of his stewardship in Mr. Cromer's ab sence. When he left the presence of his leader Mr. Sheehan was smiling as though he hail been commended for his course In regard to the or ganization, and tbero was a suggestion of self satisfaction In his statement that there would bo no change in tha Tammany programme as preparedJjr him. Mjc, Sheeban said further that Mr. Croker will probably attend the meeting of ths Tammany Hall General Committee lobe held next Friday night. This meeting has been called to Issue tha regular call for primaries and conventions, but as usual It will be made the oc casion fur a big Tammany hurrah, and tho presence of Mr. Croksr Is expected to ndrt to the enthnslasm. He left tbe city last winter with Mr. Pheehjn and other leaders, declaring that he. Croker, was the only man talked of by the organization as Its Mayoralty candidate. Mr. Croker refused then to say If he would accept the honor should It b tendered to him, and he was equally reticent yesterday. The Duration was put to him several times, but he sought refuge In the declaration that be would not talk politics. Tbe demonstration next Friday night Is expected u have much to do with detcrmin Ing whether Mr. Croker will be the candidate. There wilt bo a meeting of tbe Tammany Executive Committee at 4:30 o'clock this after noon, and one of tho Committee of Organization this evening to arrange all the preliminaries for this Croker ovation on Friday nigbt, Mr. Croker will not attend either of these. He arranged resterday to go to Itlchdeld Sorlngs to-day. Meantime, the leaders and braves will be bottling up their enthusiasm for Friday night, when be will be on hand to observe It. Mr. Croker Is much thinner than bo was when be camn to the city after the election of lost year. He owes this reduction in weight to tbo treatment bo underwent recently at Carlsbad. H Is perceptibly grayer as to beard and balr. Tbo returned leader was more anxious to re ceive than impart political Information, and be said so to all persons wbo asked his Urns on political subjects. His fellow passengers on tho New York said that ho had main tained his reticence so far as Politics was concerned throughout the voyage, llu snxmed greatly Interested In tbo political situation, but would only make ono positive declaration regarding it, and that was that be considers John C. Sheeban to be the real Tam many leader. Of Seth Low's nomination ho nuuiu nub aaj wuni, nuu mirn mm (nac lUO Tammany leaders are very confident of winning tbo election, he simply remarked: "That's good." He asserted that be bad never expressed himself as favorable to the coudldac) of any particular roan for Mayor. On his former visits to New Y'ork Mr. Croker has been wont to avoid political topics by talk Ing about his horses and his borne in England. He hvt little to say about these matter yester day. He said that be had four racing horses In training on tbe English turf; was satisfied with the results of his racing ventures thus far, and expected to try again next year. He has rente I bis place at Wang ite for another ye r. From the steamship pier Mr. and Mrs. Croker went to the Hotel Manhattan, where Mrs. Croker is staying. The politicians who were expecting him at tbe Murray Hill were disappointed, and had to Journey down town to greet him at bis office. Gen. Benjamin F. Tracy, wlio was a follow passenger with Mr. Croker on tbe New York, said tnat be bad met Mr. Croker for the first tlmu on board, and had had many pleasant talks wltb blm. " I don't think we talked much 1 about politics." said he. "That topic Mr. Cruker steered clear of. I understand, though, that Low's nomination pleases him Immensely, Ho seemingly thinks the first man In the May oralty tight is a play Into Democratic hands." Tho General wus naked If ho thought from what he hud seen of Mr. Croker and his Inter course with him on board ship, that he would accept tho Tuiumany Mayoralty nomination. Ho replied: " If be thought his election sure there Is no dougbt In my mind that bo would accept tho nomination on the Jump " Tbe General haa been mentioned as a possible Republican candidate, and he was asked If hn would tako It should It he tendered to him. Ho replied positively that he would not. He added, however, that It Is his belief that the Republi cans will win If tbey nominate the right man. Many efforts were moils resterday to get Mr. Croker to exprsis bis belief regarding the Issues of the campaign, whether the Chicago platiorm should be side tracked and ths tight made on local Issues or not. Ho would not. commit him solf. There was some talk yesterday that Tam many's leaders have In mind the adoption of somo resolutions at the meeting of tho Tam many General Committee next Friday night which will lead the radical silver men to belluvo that they are going to get what they want and to keep them quiet until tbey can be turned down at so lata a day that any Independent action tbey might take would prove Ineffective.

Ho had just finished dinner at tho Union Club, and, as he sat at his desk In tbe Pcrry-Palns build ing, his mind turned to the Sena to of the United States. '"The Senate,' said the Senator, 'Is tbo great est Institution In tha world; there Is nothing Uke it,' " "Somo reoplo say It la filled with old fogies. Is that sol" "Humph! Somo people are fools. Let any one go down there once if he thinks that. He'll soon becomo converted. It has become tbo habit among certain people who don't know what they nro talking about to say that tbo Sennto Is composed of old fossils. That Is tho most arrant nousense. "The Senate is a dignified body of dignified ram of great ability. Occasionally, perhaps, ft lightweight gets In. but he soon sinks to his proper level. The entire body can bo no more judged by such an Individual than tho entire newspaper profession bo judged by a single knave or weakling w ho may bn In the business. "Great measures come before tho Senators for settlement, and I bao yet to have pointed out to me a time when tne senate did not deter mine wlnely. The Scnato is the greatest and best legislate 0 body In the world. Passion plays no part la Its operations. Wisdom prevails. But I hove scarcely been a Senator long enough to be entitled to a place as a champion of that Body. I speak, how erer, us a man, and not as a Senator, of what I bare seen." " How do you liku being Senator I" " I'll answer that later," replied Mr. Hanna. TO RAISE THE RIO GUNS. Kfrorta ta Be Hade ta Drlaa ITp tba Elsbtesn Tenners OCT Tsbro lataad. WasiilMOToy. Sept, 7. Tho four eight-Inch guns Intended for tbe fortifications at Savannah, which went down with a schooner off Tybco Island during a gale this week, may bo rescued by tbo War Department if divers ore able to work wbero tbe vessel now He, on the bottom. The authorities bao no dctlulto Information as to tbe location of tin; wreck, the depth of tho water where the schooner sunk, or tho nature uf the bottom, but bellero that if she Is not over fifty feet below the surface and tho guns have not burled themselves In tbo sand they may yet be saved by wrecking companies. The loss will full on the Government, however, should tho guns not be found, as tbey were uninsured and the schooner carrying them was in no way re sponsible for their safe delivery. The Quartermaster's Department of tbo army, to which the guns were delivered by the Ord nance Bureau for iranortatlon from New York to Tybee. haa instructed a dredging com pany to proeevd ut oure to the sccno of tbo wreck and take soundings, with a view to dis covering how far below the surfove the guns He, and whether thc-y are still above tho sand, t'pon this report will depend what efforts are to bo made to rescue tbeni. Koch gun weighs eighteen tons, nnd un Immense derrick and hoisting apparatus would bo required, the army experts say, to bring It to tho surface. If tbo guns are not rectnered. the Government will lose about f uO.OOO. Ihe cost of their manufac ture. This is tho first serious mUbap that has overtaken the War Department in its manufac ture and delivery of guns tor the new fortifica tions. Emplacements at Tybee Island are ready for the Installation of tin- ordnance, aneflf the'four guns lost aro not recovered others will bo sent from Watervlict soon.

I., Sept, 7. President An drews Is to sever his association with tho Brown University. That decision was arrived at to day during a conference between Dr. Andrews and six members of the Executive Committeo of tho university. Dr. Andrews, It Is under stood, declared that bo believed his Intlucnco at Hrovtn was at an end. Ho expressed his desire to bo President of Mr. John Urlsben Walker's university In preferetico to remaining hero. Tho cummlttco has been somewhat prepared for this over since Dr. Andrews hurried last week from this city to nuet Mr. Walker. In fact. It Is said here that after tbo recent mooting of tho cor poration Iho request to Dr. Andrews to with draw his resignation vindicated tbo university and placed it nil right before the public It was really Immaterial what course Dr. Andrews took, because the corporation was satisfied that the public would understand that the chargo that tho university was opposed to freedom of speech was unfuunded. The were only six members of tbe Executive Committee at the conference this af tornoon and it is asserted that each agreed to keep mum about what happened at tho meeting, as Dr. Andrews was to send an official communi cation to tho committee to-morrow morning. Nevertheless, the fact that Dr. Andrews wns not to withdraw his resignation was whispered about town to-night and stitieequently verified. Dr. Andrews positively declined to say anything for publication. The members of the Executive Committee were not officially notified of tho call for tho ' meeting till this morning. It w called by 1 Dr. Andrew s. but bo saw nt to first glxe It out to the press while lu Now Y'ork and after his con- 1 ference with Mr. Walkor. Most of the members of the committee saw the announcement In tho newspapers that tbey were to meet to-day. and were consequently prepared for it. I It was pretty generally understood that tho I corporation would not tolerate anything that would serve as a division of tabor between two educational schemes. Tbe trouble ov er tho Presidency of Brown has in no way Interfered wltb tbe enrollment of students, the number being fully up to tbat of lost year. The college ye ir will berin on Sept. 1ft, and It is altogether likely tbat Dr. Andrew w HI remain until his successor is elected. tTOUAN RURULAR ESCAPES.

Father Mangln was closeted with Abbo Richer for over three hours. What occurred Is known only to thcm-ielves, but the result of It is that the lovers have beon separated. The girl is on her way to a convent, where she will spend the rest of her life. As to the priest, he has sub mitted, and is now awaiting tbe sentence which will bo passed upon him by Ills Grace, tbe Arch bishop of Ottaw s. He probably will be sent to a monastery to do penanco for two or three years. When the girl was taken away from her lover he cried bitterly and wished to die rather than be buried In a convent. Extraordinary pressure has evidently been brought to bear upon tho Abbe Richer, for until Saturday he was Arm in his determination to give up the priesthood and livo with MUs Cote.
